a Progressive Jewish Congregation

Our Guest, Human Rights Commissioner Edward Santow, will lead us in discussion following the screening of this multi award-winning comedy/drama.
Old-line liberals played by Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn have raised their daughter Joey to think for herself and not blindly conform to the conventional. Still, they aren't prepared for the shock when she returns home from a vacation with a new fiancé, African-American doctor John Prentice (Sidney Poitier). While they come to grips with whatever prejudices they might still harbor, the younger folks must also contend with John's parents who are dead-set against the union.
Registration: Registration requested to assist us with catering for the light refreshments.
Date: Sunday 28 April
Cost: Members $10; Non-members $12.50

Sunday 21 October
Over 30 participants joined us to see the film, Monsieur Lazhar, which was introduced by John Polgar who also conducted the lively discussion after the movie. It was a film that resounded with everyone and had people continue the discussion over refreshments. Importantly, many people asked when the next film afternoon would be held. Thank you John, thanks to our catering group for arranging delicious nibbles, and thanks to the rest of the committee who ensured that the afternoon ran smoothly.
Sunday 24 June 2018
Almost 40 people attended the showing of Crossing Delancey with our Boomers' Film Group on Sunday.
All those present agreed that the film, ably introduced by Leo Goorevich, was joyful and the kind of film we should show from time to time.
Discussion continued for some time over light refreshments organised by Susan Levy. Gwen Harrison, NSTE President, drew the lucky door prizes, the first of which, a can of pickled cucumbers (to honour the movie) was won by Barbara Woolf and the second, the DVD of crossing Delancey, was won by Meira Marks.
Be sure to keep the date free for our next film afternoon on 26 August at 4:00 pm!

The Boomers Film Group had a very successful film afternoon on Sunday 10 December with more than 30 people attending to watch the movie Walk on Water followed by a lively discussion led by Netzer and Communal Shaliach, Dudu Gottlib. The film was both entertaining and thought provoking and it was agreed that Dudu's input enhanced the experience for all of us, as evidenced by the continuing discussion over refreshments.
